Brief Answer:
Should get your prostate examined right now...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

Normally, the prostate should be started to get examined when you get 40 years old. So, you are in time to start examining it:

- complete blood count
- PSA level
- abdominal/uro-genital ultrasound
- digital examination
- urine analysis

Should get an appointment with your urologist and start examination right now.

All the best!
